In this add-on you will use the show and hide blocks to make sprites appear on the pages of your scrapbook where you want the sprite.

Maybe the sprite makes sense on one background, but not on all of the others.

To do this, add a new sprite to the project or pick one of your existing sprites.

As you click next, you will notice the sprite stays on all the pages.

The looks menu contains show and hide blocks.

When you click on each of these, the sprite appears and disappears.

Drag the two blocks into the scripts area.

Use these blocks to make the sprites only show on the correct pages.

In the events menu, use a when backdrop switches to block.

For this example, the sprite will show when the backdrop switches to fave project.

The sprite will hide when the backdrop switches to fave memory.

Now it's your turn.

Make a sprite appear and disappear on at least one backdrop using the show, hide, and when backdrop switches to blocks.
